When doing your research at the library, try taking a digital camera or even a disposable camera to photograph your findings. Many people do this instead of making copies, and others do this along with making copies of the items.
This is another interesting way to keep your finds quickly recorded for your research. You should however, make sure your library allows the use of a camera. Most do, but some do not and some do not allow the use of a flash. The library may also allow cameras but restrict exactly what you can photograph with it. It is a good idea to always ask before taking any pictures.
